The Swastika of Hinduism
A very famous solar symbol that has been used for luck and auspiciousness in India for millennia – and then Hitler got hold of it, reversed it, rotated it off its central axis and made it a hated and feared emblem of evil.
There could be no greater irony and it is time the swastika was rescued and restored to its true stature.
The word is derived from ’su vasti’ and means ’the essence of everything good’, a far cry indeed from the appalling perversion to which Nazi idiots twisted it.
The swastika is common to all Vedic paths (Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions) equally.
it was an Indian cultural archetypal symbol, not a sectarian mark.
Hence its power and hence the disastrous energies released when it was reversed.
A reversed swastika is used only on special occasions when there is some necessary clearing of Psychic clutter to be done and even then it is dangerous to keep it active for too long.
The Nazis not only reversed it they tilted it and then put it in Tantrik colors.
They were guaranteeing their own demise with such monkeying around with archetypes.
The swastika however is a very pure and auspicious symbol in essence, a bringer of luck and fortune and it should not get a bad reputation because of some historical distortions.
“Hands off our sacred Swastika” must be the loudest roar of the followers of Vedic or Hindu Dharma and all its sects all over the world to save the divinity, purity, auspiciousness, serenity, prestige and position Swastika holds in human race, after the German members of European Parliament called for the total ban on the use of Swastika all over Europe in protest of Prince Harry’s provocation of international outrage by wearing Nazi outfits with a swastika arm band in a private fancy dress party.
It is shocking and astonishing news for the lovers of Swastika, irrespective of their faiths, all over the world that the European parliament is in opinion of considering such a ban on this innocent symbol.
What has Swastika done wrong..?? What is the crime of Swastika…??
Once the most popular, respected, beloved, revered and worshiped symbol of human being all over the world by all races and all faiths is facing socially, religiously and ethical discrimination in Christian dominated European Parliament. This senseless, idiotic and illogical motion of Swastika phobia must be opposed strongly and stopped immediately with the demand of lifting the ban and reinstating the use and status of Swastika in Germany.
The people of the world must be educated and re-educated in the subject of Swastika to justify such worldwide agitation not only to save the Swastika but also to reinstate this holy and humble symbol with all its status, glory and respects.
Swastika or Svastika, the universal and most revered symbol of auspiciousness, good luck and well being has been portrayed as the symbol of horror, hatred and racism by the western world after World War II.
The world politics have brain washed the new generation and created unnecessary hatred towards the Swastika by portraying it as the symbol of evil, demise, destruction and ruination, and kept the public aloof from the true meaning, significance and history of Swastika.
Due to its misrepresentation many look at it and consider it today as a symbol of hate, terror and a reminder of the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party.
Swastika was not invented or designed by Hitler. He merely stole it from the most ancient human civilisations of Vedic period and used it as the emblem of his party called NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers Party) also known as Nazi (National Socialist Community) and annihilated the significance of this most ancient symbol respected as the sign of good luck, fortune and auspiciousness. Swastika was widely adopted in German society well before Hitler Era and many organisations such as Thule Society, a secret Neo-Monastic Lodge and Paramilitary Freikorps used as their symbol.
Swastika is an ancient symbol of Vedic of Aryavarta (India) that has brought luck and joy for centuries to all mankind all over the world and continues to do so in the present days. It is a symbol which stands for truth, compassion, tolerance and happiness.
It was worshipped as a symbol of good fortune universally long before Hitler’s use of it to symbolize his evil dictatorship.
The only fault of Swastika lies in its adoption by Hitler and his Nazi Party and it being used as the prominent emblem of the party and Hitler used to wear swastika on his arm band. Hitler also used to wear a cross, an old and original symbol of Christianity, still being used by Orthodox Christians, on his left chest near to his heart.
This way the cross can be put into the same category as swastika in relation to Hitler.
Why does not that make cross a sign of genocide and anti-Semitic…??
If some misunderstood and misguided people want to ban Swastika, why don’t they pass motion to ban the Cross along with Swastika….?
Is it because the Cross is sacred to Christians and European Union which is almost made up of Christian Nations? Why do the Christian Nations of Europe hold such a discriminatory attitude only towards the Swastika…?
Such questions require solid answers from not only the common people and politicians of Europe, but also from all over the world.
Thousands of years of heritage and its good faith cannot be wiped out or destroyed by this single shocking event in history.
It was not the fault of Swastika that Hitler misused it. Hitler was not a follower of Vedic Dharma or its branches or philosophy, and he was not tall, blonde and white as described in Aryan Race, a theory invented by British Royal Historians for their political gain well before Hitler.
Why should the most sacred and gentle symbol of human race be punished for whatever heinous act Hitler, his ideology and his followers committed..?
Swastika must not be punished for what Hitler did as Swastika has always represented harmony, humbleness and humanity and oneness in all diversities. Should the Holy Cross of Christianity be punished for the homicide atrocities inflicted on millions of innocent black Negroes who were burnt alive by tying them on the cross and setting alight by Ku Klux Klan, the “Christian” organization in U.S.A..??
The symbols with their high status, glory, respects and reverence in human society must not be held responsible for their misuse by a mad individual, fanatic, barbaric and discriminating religious group and politically motivated racist organisations or expansionist nation,
Swastika is the oldest religious symbol known to the human race and is widely recognised in various cultures all across the world.
Swastika derives from the oldest way of life called Vedic Dharma or original form of Hindu Dharma. Vedic Dharma- is the form of a religion based on the philosophy of life taught by God through the four scriptures called Vedas. Swastika represents all four Vedas. Geometrically, the symbol consists of four parts and points towards four directions.
If the Swastika is turned around from the centre clock-wise or anti-clockwise, it does not make any geometrical or physical changes. This represents the unchanging, all directional and endless nature of God.
Swastika is the symbol of divinity therefore it is a fundamental part of all religious ceremonies of Hindus and others. Swastikas can be seen adorned in ceremonies of birth, marriage and festivals.
The Swastika does not come from anti-Semitic origins; it derives from the ancient language of Vedic Dharma, Sanskrit. In Sanskrit, Swastika means auspiciousness.
“swasti na indro vruddhastravaha svastinah pusha vishvavedaha! Swasti nastakshya arishtanemihi svastino bruhaspatirdadhatu!!
of Yajurveda defines the swastika saying,
“May all mighty god of infinite glory be auspicious to us, May the all knowing Lords of the universe be of auspiciousness to us.
May the powerful protection of the universe bring auspiciousness to us May the Lord of Lords. The supreme being brings fortune to us.”
Vedic Dharma or its sects which include Sikhism, Buddhism and Jainism, have never done anything wrong to other religions, they have never waged any atrocities on other faiths.
Vedic (Hindu) Dharma teaches the principles of help, charity, tolerance and non-violence with exceptional limitation of self-defence The living example of its greatness is in the thousands of years old settlements of Jews and Parsi’s (Persian Zoroastrians) in India, who have practiced their faith freely and without any persecution and their community flourished in India with respects and dignity and freedom.
The deplorable deed perpetrated by Hitler for his own gain, fame and supremacy had nothing to do with Vedic/Hindu Dharma or its sects. The presence of Swastika is evident in various civilizations such as the Egyptians, Mayans.
